CONTEXT. A set of 20 extremely red galaxies at 2.5<z<3.8 with photometric features of old passive-evolving galaxies without dust, with stellar masses of ~10^{11} M_sun, have colors that could be related to passive-evolving galaxies with mean ages larger than 1 Gyr. This suggests they have been formed, on average, when the Universe was very young (<1 Gyr). AIMS. We provide new estimates for the stellar content of these 20 galaxies, with a deeper analysis for two of them that includes…

Impact of young stellar components on quiescent galaxies: deconstructing cosmic chronometers
Context. Cosmic chronometers may be used to measure the age difference between passively evolving galaxy populations to calculate the Hubble parameter H(z) as a function of redshift z. The age
Timing the formation and assembly of early-type galaxies via spatially resolved stellar populations analysis
To investigate star formation and assembly processes of massive galaxies, we present here a spatially-resolved stellar populations analysis of a sample of 45 elliptical galaxies (Es) selected from
J-PLUS: Two-dimensional analysis of the stellar population in NGC 5473 and NGC 5485
Context. The spatial variations of stellar population properties within a galaxy are intimately related to their formation process. Therefore, spatially resolved studies of galaxies are essential to
The ALHAMBRA survey: 2-D analysis of the stellar populations in massive early-type galaxies at z < 0.3
We present a technique that permits the analysis of stellar population gradients in a relatively low cost way compared to IFU surveys analyzing a vastly larger samples as well as out to larger radii.
Relation of internal attenuation, dust emission, and the size of spiral galaxies
Aims. Dust in spiral galaxies produces emission in the far-infrared (FIR) and internal absorption in visible wavelengths. However, the relation of the two amounts is not trivial because optical
Model selection using cosmic chronometers with Gaussian Processes
The use of Gaussian Processes with a measurement of the cosmic expansion rate based solely on the observation of cosmic chronometers provides a completely cosmology-independent reconstruction of the
Tests and Problems of the Standard Model in Cosmology
The main foundations of the standard $$\Lambda $$ΛCDM model of cosmology are that: (1) the redshifts of the galaxies are due to the expansion of the Universe plus peculiar motions; (2) the cosmic
Measuring the sound horizon and absolute magnitude of SNIa by maximizing the consistency between low-redshift data sets
The comoving sound horizon at the baryon drag epoch, rd, encapsulates very important physical information about the pre-recombination era and serves as a cosmic standard ruler. On the other hand, the
Low redshift constraints on energy-momentum-powered gravity models
There has been recent interest in the cosmological consequences of energy-momentum-powered gravity models, in which the matter side of Einstein’s equations is modified by the addition of a term
Quantifying the evidence for the current speed-up of the Universe with low and intermediate-redshift data. A more model-independent approach
We reconstruct in this paper the deceleration and jerk parameters as functions of the cosmological redshift from data on cosmic chronometers (CCH), baryon acoustic oscillations (BAOs), and the
